Bringing on-campus activities and field trips in line with school-based curriculum in kindergarten, primary, secondary and tertiary education

OWLHK Secondary School Environmental Education Series - Inter-form Activities

Our Environmental Education Activities offer flexibility in arrangements, with accordance to schools’ themes, time and location. Our programs could reduce administrative work and assist teachers organize grade-wide trips, comprehensive learning, experiential learning activities and project-based learning.

Our team could flexibly arrange activity framework, such as date, duration and location. Environmental Education activities could be held on weekdays or weekends, or even in-campus services. With reference to school-based factors like location, target participants and schedule, we could suggest alternative plans. Hong Kong has a diversified natural environment, which is an ideal place for students to get in touch with the nature. Taking the environmental carrying capacity into account, suitable site options are suggested according to the number of participants. Activity themes consist of variable choices, including but not limited to forests, ocean, wetland, urban and bird ecology. To enhance students’ awareness and interests towards local ecology and biodiversity, while encouraging students to explore the nature and participate in ecological conservation actively, we could provide diversified and interactive activity formats. Indoor activities may be thematic sharing or board game learning activities. Outdoor activities mainly focus on ecological field trips and outdoor game exploratory activities.

Schools are very welcome to provide tentative activity framework or preliminary ideas. We would later discuss with you to formulate tailor-made and specialized educational programs, providing students with an enjoyable opportunity to experimental learning.

CMA Choi Cheung Kok Secondary School

In July 2023, we held a “Little Wildlife Directors” activity for 140 Form 1-3 students of CMA Choi Cheung Kok Secondary School. The activity was conducted in Cantonese and English. In the thematic talk, students were introduced to Hong Kong biodiversity and the concept of food chain. Subsequently, tutors tapped in elements of wildlife photography, and introduced animals and plants from three habitats with a locally-produced ecological short video. After grasping main points of making a wildlife documentary, students collaborated to create a 1-minute wildlife documentary revolving local food chains with the use of tablet App. Applying what they have learned, students then took turns to share their great works with live narration.

Wai Kiu College

Invited by Wai Kiu College, we organized a grade-wide forest ecology activity day for about 190 Form 1-2 students. Conducting in Cantonese and English, students first learned about local ecology and biodiversity via indoor subject sharing. Afterwards, students visited Tai Po Kau Nature Reserve, Aberdeen Country Park and Tsuen Kam Au in groups for a forest ecology field trip. Under the guidance of group tutors, students get to know some common forest animals and plants through games and sensory exploration to experience the forest environment. Lastly, students recorded what was learned in a logbook as reflection, including organisms encountered and human impact on forest. In turn, students came up with their own ways to conserve forest in daily life.

Hoi Ping Chamber of Commerce Secondary School

OWLHK has held《Law of the Forest》 board game learning activity for two consecutive school years for around 150 Form 5 students from Hoi Ping Chamber of Commerce Secondary School. Through thematic talk, students learned about fundamental ecological concepts and local forest biodiversity. In the board game session, students were “transformed” to forest wildlife to experience “survival of the fittest”. Through game education, students gained a deeper understanding of food chain and relationships between organisms and forests. Experiencing the threats induced by humans, students could reflect on ways of conserving forests in daily life.
